(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) announces a new partnership with Piscine Global, an international tradeshow for the swimming pool and spa industry in Lyon, France. Under the new agreement, Gold winners from APSP’s International Awards of Excellence design competition will participate in Piscine Global’s Pool Vision design program. The 2013 Gold recipients will represent APSP in France this fall.
For its second edition, Pool Vision Awards now extends selection to the Middle East and Asia, in addition to European projects.
The APSP International Awards of Excellence program recognizes and rewards installations of pools, spas, hot tubs and water features that showcase the most beautiful and creative work in the industry. Hundreds of entries are submitted each year, representing member firms across the United States and around the world. This event is open to APSP members only.
Pool Vision is an international competition aimed at pool builders and architects and focusing on the design of swimming pools around the world. The purpose of this competition is to propose a wide range of pool projects to Piscine Global visitors in order to illustrate the large possibilities of design and building technologies available on the market.
“APSP is proud to partner with Piscine Global and the Pool Vision Awards Program,” said APSP CEO and President Rich Gottwald. “We have a tradition of honoring the world’s premier pools, spas, hot tubs and water features and the Pool Vision Awards are a natural fit for elevating and celebrating the art of aquatic construction.”
Twenty-four swimming pool installations will be presented at Piscine Global on the Pool Vision area and three of them will win the Gold Award in these categories: residential swimming pool, commercial swimming pool and spa.
